Sixth Grade

Grade 6 students will participate in Intro to Middle School in the first quarter, designed to support students transitioning to the upper school. This course lays the foundation for a successful transition from elementary to the more rigorous demands of middle school. It also includes a focus on organizational and study skills. At the end of Introduction to Middle School, students will begin their World Language study. Starting in 6th grade, students will spend three years studying either Spanish or French, based on their interest and course availability. By the end of three years, students will have completed the equivalent of one year of high school World Language study, with the goal of being able to enroll in level two of that language in 9th grade.

Finally, a co-teaching model will be used in sixth grade math classrooms, with special educators and math content specialists teaming to increase individualized attention for every student. In addition to providing individual challenge, these extended periods will help upper schools close gaps for students entering from the variety of CPS elementary programs, and ensure that all upper school students are prepared to access the rigors of the Grade 7 program.
